Well there's Uwe Boll movies, but studios don't greenlight them -- just distribute them after they're made.

^ That's what I'm saying, too. I'm glad he understands that this movie's going to have to work, or the Star Trek we know and love may be forever buried...for a while. ;)

And here I was thinking JJ was just making a movie for me and a few internet buddies.

Stick a fork in this baby, it's done. ;)

Got to love continuous PR that doesn't have any substance to it.
